    Let's be honest, Linehan bailed on the run enough when Elliott was available. I can't imagine he wouldn't be even quicker to abandon it with lesser running backs.

    First down, hand off to Morris, quick pick up of three. Gang tackled after a short gain. 2nd and 7, empty backfield for Dak, Witten in the slot---

    This is the latest defense from the apologist camp. That people are just saying this in hindsight as if people weren't saying similar things around the draft.

    Frankly, I recall Taco not exactly being a wildly popular pick.

    Those FA signings were bandaid guys only. Not meant to long term. Those FA's were signed to cheap deals to cover until the suspended players returned and rooks got experience. Signing high priced FA's would have been incredibly stupid. The Cowboys did the right thing buy putting a cheap bandage in place until everyone came back. Mercenaires are all they were.

    Taco wasn't a reach. A lot of mocks had him in the top 20.

    Brady is ok at the QB sneak, but he can't run outside like Zeke.

    Because this is what sports message boards are for.

    For people to ***** a lot and other people to blow smoke up the franchise's butt and cover for them against most criticism, which you and others do.

    That's kind of how sports fandom works. You are annoyed by the complaining and others are annoyed by the constant excuse making and covering for the franchise.

    That's how all of this is supposed to work.

    See, maybe they should bring in a FA or two that actually can help them win instead of just be crappy band aids.

    And no, Carroll and Paea were not band aids no matter how many times you guys want to try to float that idea.

    Who is the up and coming, stud 1 Tech that Paea just had to band aid for a couple of games? He was brought in to be the starting 1 Tech.

    They doggedly chased Carroll for two off seasons and gave him a contract with a cap hit in 2018. Yeah, not a band aid. They actually thought he could play.

    I Hope you understand, RONYX, that should I ever refer to the "S troop" in disparaging terms after the wheels come off Philly's radio flyer little red wagon here shortly, that I'm not talking about you and several other highly esteemed members whose casing-liner's start with an 'S'.

    The Eagles have 3 -4th round picks in in 2018. What an amazing deal even if he sucks, which he shouldn't.

    Right, but WE are the reigning division champs and have at least proven in recent years that we can play good football after November.

    The Eagles have not.

    Hence, my decision to hold off on crowning them or making any declarations about who's passed who by.

    They've won 7 games. They deserve whatever credit is appropriate for winning 7 games at this point in the season.

    Nailed it. The Eagles number 1 WR a year ago is a 3 guy. They desperately needed an infusion of talent there. Hence the Alshon/torrie signings.

    We both did what we did to bring in our franchise QB. The Eagles went all in for Wetz and we kind of lucked out with Dak. Then again we loved him throughout the draft process.

    Buuut...we totally failed this off-season. No question.

    I think the answer is in between both sides of each argument.

    Oh, Man! :lmao: I've a pretty good killer headache already from falling off the couch laughing earlier and it saddens me bitterly that I cannot truly enjoy this hilariously original masterpiece of humor I've stumbled upon in all it's solid gold casing-liner:thumbup:

    ( I've done put 4 posting hacks on ignore today and that's really not my style,,,maybe somebody could remind me later who they areo_O)

    Btw we were looking for a future, developmental QB. Philly was looking for a day 1, franchise QB.

    Fortunately for us, Dak was way ahead of the learning curve. And yes. Risenstar. Wentz is a better pure passer and athlete. Why can't you just root for another impressive, young QB on your own squad?

    They just traded one fourth-rounder away, so they have two left. However, they have no 2nd or 3rd round pick.

    Yes, they sent the 3rd and Jordan Matthews for Darby.
    Their 2nd was part of the Wentz deal.
